- When cool, blend the dals in a mixer to a fine powder.
- Add the coconut, coriander, green chillies, ginger and salt to it and blend to a smooth paste 5 tbsp of water. Keep aside.

- When the seeds crackle, add the urad dal, red chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for 10 seconds.
- Pour this tempering over the chutney and mix well.
- Refrigerate and use as required.
